For Suhl - >>Nitro<< was 1912 & for Z-M it was 1911 for the rules change. Just by where the R surmounted by a Crown are located, I would think it was for a chamber lengthening??

It is a Kerner-Anson platform so that will also put a date bounds on it.

Boys Praunsmändtl did exist post WWII, so I guess it is possible that they were used car salesmen along with being firearms merchants. Did the address Ludwigstraße 26 pop up associated with them?

I now have acquired the necessary brass, bullets and dies to get this one shooting once more. A Lyman load manual from the 1950's provides a mild load using 4198 powder ar 1800 fps which I will use to start.

If you can lay your hands on some VV N140, it is similar to the original R5(Rottweil No. 5) which some of the old cartridges were loaded. Too, there a reduced load for it that has some excellent accuracy. I'll have to dig thru my notes.
